GoFundMe started for family killed in Texas mass shooting

A GoFundMe to support the loved ones of the Cho family, who were victims of the mass shooting at a mall in Allen, Texas, has raised over $800,000 so far.

Cindy, Kyu and their three-year-old son James were killed during the shooting on Saturday afternoon. Their six-year-old son William has been released from the ICU, but remains hospitalized. William had just celebrated his birthday four days prior to the shooting.

“An afternoon that should have been filled with light, love and celebration unfortunately was cut short by another mass shooting massacre that left 8 victims dead,” the GoFundMe page reads.

The page was set up to help the family. People from all around the world are offering their support.

“I’ve spent the whole of my life living in South Korea and had no chance to meet and know them in US, but the fact itself that I and the family are from South Korea gets me in a bond with the family and makes me join the sadness for them,” one donor wrote.
